Olympia: Bryan Ferry
The legendary Bryan Ferry returns with his suave and sophisticated debut on Astralwerks Records, the brand new studio album Olympia (co-produced by Ferry and the legendary Rhett Davies).
The album features musical contributions from Nile Rodgers, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, Groove Armada, Scissor Sisters, Marcus Miller, Flea, Mani (Primal Scream, ex Stone Roses) and Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead. Olympia sees Bryan Ferry reunite on record with members of Roxy Music, including Brian Eno, Phil Manzanera, and Andy Mackay. This is the first album to reunite them since Roxy Music’s seminal album For Your Pleasure in 1973!
Olympia is a masterpiece of prolific artistry, blending sultry, elegant lyrics with genius compositions by Ferry, Rhett Davies and innovative, contemporary musicians. The album features eight new songs, and Ferry’s moving adaptation of Tim Buckley’s “Song To the Siren”, and the amazing version of Traffic’s “No Face, No Name, No Number”; as well as collaborations with Scissor Sisters on “Heartache By Numbers” and “Shameless” with Groove Armada.
